  • Steal Rita Ora's Style from the EMA Awards!

    Who tuned into the EMA Awards this past Sunday, November 10th? We sure did! There's nothing more entertaining than music and dresses, and when the two are put together it ensures a great time!

    There were many fashion do's and a few fashion don'ts! According to Perez Hilton, Rita Ora was "Blah in Black" at the 2013 EMA's.

     Although Rita's dress at this year's award show was deemed "blah" and "boring", her unique and daring dress from last year's EMA awards caught our eye and had us gushing so much that we're still talking about it!

    We love a good ball gown. Especially one that's red.. and LACE! Rita looked like a million bucks from head to toe and we're going to show you how to accomplish this lavish look!

    Mac Duggal 61393R

    Mac Duggal style 61393R is so similar to the dress Rita Ora is wearing that you shouldn't be surprised if you're accidentally mistaken for the starlet. We adore the way the nude illusion leaves room for the red lace to really pop and catch eyes!

    natural toned lips

     Rita decided to go with a red lip, which we think is fabulous, but if you want to tone the look down a bit you could go for a more natural make-up approach as shown in the picture above. Finger Waves are also a MUST! Finger waves and lace give off a very vintage vibe; which is why the two go together perfectly.

    Accessories

    Lastly, you can't forget your accessories! Try to keep the bling to a minimum because the dress makes a huge statement on it's own! We chose the Johnathan Kayne Austria - Swarovski Austrian Crystals heels, the Helen's Heart (JB-PD00339) Gold Bracelet and the Helen's Heart (E06245) Gold Crystal Stone Earrings.

    With last year's outfit in mind, we're not surprised that Rita landed on the "blah" list this year. Any dress is sub-par compared to this goddess gown!

    What do you think of this bold look?

  • Fall 2012 Makeup Trends

    Even though December is here, it's still pretty warm out on the East Coast and Winter doesn't officially set in until the end of the month. So, we're making sure to enjoy all parts of Fall before all of the leaves are gone!

    We've been especially keeping our love of Fall going by breaking out our favorite makeup looks of the season here at the store! Allure Magazine is always a great place to get beauty inspiration, and we've taken a hint from them for our favorite Fall makeup looks. They picked their top Fall makeup trends earlier this season, and we chose our favorite 4 out of the bunch that we've been rocking here at Rissy Roo's!

    Red lipstick is always "in," but lately the popular look is to take that classic red color and go a shade deeper. You can rock the look by just wearing a dark red shade, or be bold with a burgundy or plum color. There's some shades that even border on being black! Kristen Stewart looked stunning wearing a dark red lip color on the October 2012 issue of Vogue UK. It's a very romantic look, but just make sure to pair it with some blush or bronzer to keep from looking like Bella when she's a vampire in Breaking Dawn 2!

    Smoky eyes have been a popular trend for a few years now, but this look has always been synonymous with black. Now it's time for black to take a back seat and let brown be the go-to color when rocking the trendy smoky eye look. Black smoky eyes originally became popular because of how bold they are; but, smoky eyes can still be impactful, even without the bold black. Go for softer shades like brown and taupe for a more natural take on the fashionable trend.

    While the classic smoky eyes took a softer turn this season, the classic cat eye got a make-over with a more bold, statement look. You can be the coolest cat in town by adding in longer swoops and larger shapes to your outline for a more dramatic look.

    Whether or not you'll be outside camping all through the Fall or hitting the ski slopes all Winter, having rosy cheeks that make you look like an outdoors maven is always sexy! We especially love Gwyneth Paltrow's healthy looking cheeks paired with deep red lipstick in the above photo - two trends in one!

    Geometric shaping around the eyes will be all the rage this Fall, says Elle magazine.  Get creative with your eyeliner and try out something more risqué like long wings at the corners, thick lines, and dots.  Adding something more to your basic eyeliner and shadow will bring a new shape and feeling to your entire look.  Also in style for the season are bold, full colors along the eyelid.  Mixing in some bold eye shadow colors to your pallet can additionally bring more attention to your beautiful eyes!

    History Lesson – Fall Hairstyles

    Daniel at Fashioning says that this season, hairstyles are getting Vintage.  The 1960s ponytail, side braid,  and classic wavy bob from the 40s are taking over.  These hair trends are bringing us back in time and making it a little easier to style our hair each morning.  This Vintage mix is really about comfort and staying casual.  Any straight hair will look fab in a long, low ponytail, while those with curly locks are in luck too with manageable braids or a bob look.
